Epiphyllum  “Orchid Cactus”

Light: This tropical cactus prefers intense bright light with some light filtered sun. An eastern facing exposure would be ideal. 

Water: Because these are epiphytes, they can be mounted on a plaque or slatted basket. If potted, use a succulent mix and allow the soil to dry almost by half before watering thoroughly. A light mix that dries quickly is ideal. 

Environment: Epiphyllums do best in warm, humid, and shady spots that replicate a tropical forest. Although humidity is preferred, it is quite tolerant of drier conditions. Be sure there is no airflow from heating or AC in the direction of the plant.

Toxicity: No toxicity reported

Of Note*:

  • This plant easily propagated from cutting its fleshy leaves and rooting the pieces in water or soil
  • Epiphyllum can flower but the flower is fairly short lived 
*When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting. Printable Care Sheet
